What show recently impressed you?
War Horse: Loved it! The way they told the story was imaginative, exciting and moving.
What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
It may sound funny, but in the future I would love to play "Tevye" in Fiddler on the Roof. His talks with God (and the audience) are a wonderful part of classic musical theatre. Also "Alfred Doolittle" in My Fair Lady… "With a Little Bit of Luck" and "Get Me to the Church on Time"... he has the song and dance numbers that steal the show!
What are your current/upcoming projects?
I've been traveling around with a concert called Bohème to Broadway that mixes the best melodies from opera and Broadway. We also performed it at Feinstein's at the Regency in New York. It's a lot of fun, and people respond really well, even those who are "afraid" of opera. I'm also working on a solo show that I tried out a few months ago at a supper club. But whether it's a musical or an opera or concert...it's always a joy to connect with an audience!
